'The chamber of commerce at its
meeting last night took action of the
most vital importance to every btiri-
nees and property interest. The chaiu,-
Tjer put itself squarely on record as op
posed to the further granting of rail
way trackage privileges in tfte heart of
the city,' and as being desirous of fur
thering, in every possible way, the
establishment of joint terminal facili
ties. During the discussion last night it
was brought out quite decisively that
the feeling that has' been slowly sim
mering for a number of years has now
come to a boil, and that the people are
all ready to take a definite stand on the
subject, about which there has been in
the past a good deal of difference of
opinion. The tone of moderation in
the meeting was remarkable, and ev
eryone was anxious to avoid leading
the railroads to think that the action
was taken in any spirit of antagonism.
Expression was given to the belief
that tbe railroads would be obliged ro
build better depots in a very short time
and that the Southern Pacific would
be obliged to make its tracks perfectly
safe, and not so unsightly as at pres
ent. Several members said that prompt
action in this matter on the part of
the people now would be a real kini!
ness and money saver to the railro.tris
as it would enable, them to avoid
trouble in the near future.
The committee appointed last night
is an admirable one for the purpose.
It is representative and competent to
deal with the question. The commit
tee has a most difficult job before it.
And the work must be done quick!.
The steel is ready to forge, and not a
moment should be lost.
There is every indication that all the
railroads are ready and desirous to
make a change. A feasible plan, prop
erly presented to all the roads, with
stout argument and good financial
backing, would certainly receive the
honest 'consideration of all the roads,
and would probably brjng about the
desired end. The plan should be de
vised on a large scale. It should be
laid out for the future. It should be
conceived in a liberal spirit, and tbe
financial inducements should be maie
most enticing. The railroads should
not be asked to do it all. The enter
prise is one of vital interest to every
El Pasoan. A relief from the present
the chamber.
The meeting demonstrated one thing
admirably. That was the complete
success of the new plan for electing di
rectors. Figures will prove It. At the
close of the meeting last night there
were twenty two members of the
chamber present. Twelve of those

The result is gratifying. The new

to an extent that has not been realized
during the year just closed.
The president's report shows a go-id
deal accomplished, after all, but It can
not be denied that tlie tod conservative
element has been allowed too much
swing in the board to permit the reali
zation of the fullest possibilities of the
organization. What the people want
to see is Things Done. If the policy of
the board is forceful and always pro
gressive and in the lead of all public
movements, the chamber will not lack
for support from the public.

may be pardoned for suggesting to the
new board that nothing gives the pub

fulness and ability of any director us

of the board. The responsibility the
directors assume is great, and am.mg

Sports and
The base ball boys who remained in
the City of Mexico are still playing
under the name of El Paso, having
added to the team several old El Paso
players. Wldman is playing in the out
field with the reorganized team. They
played their first game on Sunday but
the score has not been learned. The
boys who returned last Saturday are
getting ready to report to their teams
for spring practice.
It is not altogether improbable that
El Paso will be the scene of several
first class boxing matches next week as
a well known sporting man today re
ceived work from a friend who is now
in Hot Springs that he would be here
to attend the Carnival and that he
would be glad to go six rounds in a
sparring match with some good man.
The sports are taking hold of the mat
ter and may arrange for several six
round bouts to take place some place
in the city. The Natatorium roof gar
den is spoken of as a suitable place.
Arrangements are fast being com
pleted for the coming foot ball game
with the University of Texas during
the Carnival. The boys are getting
into better condition than they were
for the other games played this season
and will be able to put up the game of
their lives when they meet the strong
aggregation from the state university.

ceived from the Texas team for several
days, people coming from Austin state

Look at that list of directors of the
chamber of commerce. Why would
that not make a first class board of
aldermen for the city at the next elec
tion? The novelty of the thing woild
result in a big victory for this busi
ness men's ticket. And wouldn't it
be a splendid thing if the city could
be spared the rancor and loss of time
and money that is inevitable from a
hot political campaign? The Heraid
nominates eight of the directors of
the chamber of commerce for a n-
board of aldermen. Mr. Courchesne is
ineligible. The names of those nomi
nated are U. S. Stewart, C. R. More
head, S. J. Freudenthal, H. B. Stev
ens. Felix Martinez, W. G. Walz, B. F.
Hammett. and E. Kohlberg. The cit
izens would probably agree to lot
these eight select the candidate for
mayor, within or without their number.

contains two articles of particular in
terest to women one on the Puritan
and Dress Reform, the other Public
Memorials to Women. The stern atti
tude of the Puritans towards any vani
ties of dress is explained by an account
of the excesses of fashion and vanities
in the latter part of the eighteenth
century when wigs, powders, enamels,
patches, ruffles, stays, feathers and
perfumes were so preposterous that
honest men cried out at the artificiality
and extravagance of the day. The Pur
itans were masterful men and their
day was an old fashioned one, so their
decree against vanities and fashions
held good with their women folk and
the reform for a short while was car
ried to its extreme. The first law
makers of Massachusetts set about to
eradicate and prevent vanity in tbe
new world by rigid laws, forbidding tle
use of silver, gold, and silk laces, gir
dles and hat bands also of all cut
work and needle work, and also pro
hibiting slashes except one for each
sleeve and one for tne back. After
two years, the law makers made an
other law. against lace and one against
big sleeves, and in another few years
gold and silver buttons and silken
hoods and scarfs were legislated
against. In spite otithe earnest exam
ple however, vanity and fashions final
ly crept into the New England colo
nies and has waxed great up to and
through our own days. The account
of public memorials to women is par
ticularly interesting. Pictures are
given of the beautiful Taj Mahal, tle
most exquisite memorial temple that
has ever been raised to honor a woman
the loving thought of Shah Jehan in
honor of his favorite wife.
The portraits of Cleopatra carved up
on the walls of a temple near Thebes
told of and many memorials of queens
and empresses are mentioned. There
are pictures of the various Victoria
statues in Canada and England and
copies of the many Joan of Arc stat
ues, some representing her as the war
rior maid, others as the peasant girl.
The lovely Queen Ixniise statue set
deep in a background of trees is re
produced and the splendid Maria
Theresa monument in Vienna is also
pictured. Many of our own country
women have been honored by memor
ial shafts and statues: Harriet Beech
er Stowe, Mary Washington, Margaret
Hanghery. the poor laundress of New
Orleans who by patient drudgery snd
continual sacrifice started her kind
work of caring for the orphans of the
city and won for her homely face and
figure memory and honor that shall
last longer than granite and marble
shall endure; Emma Willard, whose
great work was tor education; the pic
turesque Pocahontas, the first Ameri
